Ad hoc Committees


  1. Christmas DinnerSocial/Fellowship
    A word from the Chair: “The demands of classes and homework can often stress us out, so the fellowship committee is a group that tries to add a little fun into the seminary community.  We plan and organize activities like Christmas around the World and the end of the year bash/barbeque with the hopes of being able to kick back for a while and just enjoy each other’s company.” Alex Prevette
  2. Deis NatalisDies Natalis
    A word from the Chair: “Dies Natalis (“Day of Birth”) is the seminary’s birthday and is one of the highlights of the year for faculty, staff and students.  On March 15, the community gathers for breakfast and a (student-run) show involving songs, skits, videos and general hilarity–all poking (good-natured) fun at seminary life.” Dave Van Berkel

    A word from the Chair: “The Town Hall Committee works to facilitate community dialogue on issues of common interest through hosting monthly “Town Hall” meetings.  Aiming at constructive discussion, not heated debate, we guide the community’s voice of truth and grace as it engages topics of communal concern in ways that edify the church and glorify God.” John Lee

In this capacity, I try to keep in mind the needs of particularly the Seminary community, and also to bring forward its concerns.” Albert Gootjes

  6. Book Sale
